A Postcard & Thoughts for a friend

For this snowy Super Bowl Sunday I am going to be sharing A Valentine's Day Postcard plus a card sending out thoughts to a friend.

The Valentine's Day Postcard was designed by Trevis Bossaller, a demonstrator that I swapped with at Leadership.

The vintage look is done in a different way then I had done before, she took Stampin' Up's stipple brush and dabbed crumb cake ink onto the very vanilla cardstock around where she had stamped the "Postcard" words from the Winter Post stamp set. The designer paper is from the awesome love letters pack. Then she stamped the Be My Valentine stamp twice on 2 different pieces of very vanilla cardstock. Once in riding hood red & once in crumb cake. Both got cut out but the crumb cake one only the banner part was used. Using a couple of dimensionals she attached it on top of the riding hood red heart. Then put a few pearls on it to accent the flower pattern. Just love it. It was one of my favorite swaps.

The next card I saw as I was going through some of the pictures I had taken at Leadership & it made me think of my friend Jennifer. Her family lost their beloved dog Gracie last week, very unexpectedly. So this card is for her.

This card was posted up on one of the share boards at Leadership so I do not know who was the designer of this wonderful card. It uses friends fur-ever stamp set. That includes the dog, the bone, & the heart. The words are from the curly cute stamp set. The colors are real red, basic black & whisper white. Part of the base of the card is embossed with the polka dot embossing folder. Just love that cute little dog.

Until next time,
